Butterflies and a couple of Dragons

There seems to have been a massive influx of Red Admirals over the last couple of days ,with at least 30 + seen at differnt sites(ringstone, soil hill,Ogden,Barkisland and Northowram).There were 300 in off at Spurn on Monday.Also a lot of Speckle woods and Peacocks.
2 very large Brown Hawkers at Ringstone yeasterday and 4/5 Common Darters(i think?) at soil Hill this morning.

Andy...dozens of Red Admiral around here on the Llyn at the moment. I went fishing this morning and just about every step along the coast I put up Red Admirals,Large Whites, Speckled Wood, Plain Golden Y and Silver Y. Its baking hot here today with cloudless blue skies for the first time this year just about ! I also had Common Lizard for the first time this year on my way back to the van
